  • Excerpt: This lens looked really good and image quality seems ok, that's why I don't give it 0 stars. Tthe deal breaker here is that although this lens is advertised as f/3.5 it really is more like an f/3.5-5.0, because 5.0 is the maximum achievable aperture when focused at the minimum focusing distance and since this is a macro lens that should be a pretty common scenario, for me this is absurd, I'm a pro photographer and I have a sigma 180(macro) for my full frame DSLR and of...
  • Cons: False Max Aperture, Poor in Low Light, Variable Aperture Prime

Not as what I expected

Gel, B&H Photo
2 July 2012
  • Excerpt: A solid, sharp lens but slow and inconsistent AF. Sometimes, focus can be attained at 12 inches but most of the time I have to back out a little bit to get autofocus to work.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Must have gotten a bad one

Grasshopper, B&H Photo
19 August 2010
  • Excerpt: I take a lot of very close-up photos of flowers. I had been using either a Nikor 70-300mm zoom with a Canon 500D close-up lens on it or a Nikor 16-85mm lens for this. I am currently using a Nikon D90 camera and being a DX size I decided that the 85mm would serve my purpose for a true macro lens, being both less expensive and much lighter than the Nikor 105. But..
  • Pros: Light
  • Cons: Not Sharp

Ok Lens

UpNorth77, B&H Photo
25 January 2010
  • Excerpt: My first thought when taking the lens out of the box was 'cheap'. The lens is light weight, but the construction of it just seems weak. Upon further inspection, the front element of the lens doesn't even look coated and prone to easily being scratched. [...]. Although I believe Nikon stands behind their standards, I just had a hard time spending $500+ on a lens that I feel would cost around half that.
  • Pros: Fast AF, VR
  • Cons: Non coated front element, Pricey, Weak construction

Schärfe schlechter als erwartet. VR rasselt extram laut

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 March 2014
  • Summary: Habe das Objektiv als Ersatz für mein Sigma 150 Makro (zu schwer) geplant. In der Planung weiter enthalten das Tamron 90mm und das Sigma 105 mm. Sigma ist zur Zeit nicht lieferbar. Deshalb nur das Nikon und Tamron. In der Schärfe bei Macros liegt das Objektiv hinter dem Tamron 90 mm zurück. Der VR rasselt wirklich beängstigent. Als ob ein Schraube permanent ans Gehäuse schlägt.

Unerwartet

Weinfrange, Amazon
27 August 2011
  • Summary: Nachdem ich mich mit mehreren Makro-Objektiven auseinandergesetzt hatte, viel meine Wahl schließlich auf das Nikon AF-S Micro Nikkor DX 85mm. Zum einen war mir der Preis für das Nikkor 105mm zu hoch, zum anderen wollte ich für spontane Freihand-Aufnahmen einen Bildstabilisator. Nach einer wie üblich, sehr raschen Lieferung, konnte ich das 85mm gleich an meiner D90 ausprobieren.
